Goal of 10 day submission was set by CEO
Early start, early course correction
Starting early, early course correction
Identified testing gaps early
Obtained documentation from vendor bridging standard revisions

510(k) regulations and submissions are complex
With proper planning and tools the process does not have to be painful
Delays are predictable and preventable
